1)I am not sure if the Ingredient list is complete.Hence I am not sure if its paraben-free.
2)It contains SLS.
3)Stearic acid is mildly comedogenic so it will not suit severe acne skin types.
4)Easy availability might be an issue but easily available online.

Directions for use:
Apply facial foam on wet face.Massage lightly and rinse with water.
I am one person who constantly experiments with skin care products.Sometimes,I follow good skin care routine.Other times,work gets so hectic and barely get for time for anything so then starts a period of neglect.As a result my skin suffered due to sun damage and acne marks left behind were also more obvious.I felt that my skin lost that glow.
Though my acne was in check(credits to Priyanka),hyper pigmentation was bothering me.I was using AHA Glow
and I was looking for a change.I like it when brands go extra mile and make the cleansers extra special by adding good ingredients which can actually have a effect on your skin.
I have been using EthiGlo for around 1.5 months.I feel my skin is improved,I can notice some lightening of tan and blemishes.I would recommend this cleanser for normal/oily skin types on relatively acne-free skin.It does have comedogenic ingredient so if you have active acne.severe acne,I would suggest you skip it.These days,I am fortunately having good skin days.My sister recently became a mommie(yes I am aunt now 😉 ) so even she was facing some hyper-pigmentation due to hormonal changes.She is too was pleasantly happy with the results.Previously,I had also tried Melawash from Curatio.In comparison to that I liked EthiGlo more.Please note this is not a fairness face wash,these whitening tags can be misleading at times.It is targeted towards hyper-pigmentation.It is little on the pricier side,but for a treatment cleanser I find it reasonable.Guys,since it has AHA/BHA’s,kindly do not forget to use a good sunscreen.For a cleanser,it does a pretty good job so worth a shot guys!
PS:Ethiglo Soap also is available for body and a cheaper version of face wash.
